Whether you are on a cruise ship docking at Haines, Ak or in Skagway, or are traveling independently (like us), the Takshanuk Trail "Mules" excursion is not to be missed! I didn't have good cell service while in Haines, so I wrote Barb at Takshanuk Mountain via email, and got an almost immediate response from her, working with our open... More

This 4x4 motorized hike was amazing and exhilarating even in the rain! Coming down the mountain was a bit unnerving, but never dangerous and we were glad to see people of all ages on the trip. The owner came out and made sure we all had blankets to stay warm and dry. The lunch was hearty and flavorful. If we... More

After a short 45 minute boat ride from the dock where our ship was, we docked at Haines. On the way there the Captain gave some information and pointed out scenic views of glaciers and water falls. Once at the dock a short bus ride to the 4 X 4 vehicles which they also gave information on the area. After... More

We (me, my husband, 14 yo son and 11 yo daughter) had a terrific experience on this tour. First, we sought to book it just a few days before our ship was to arrive in Skagway; another excursion we had booked was cancelled at the last minute due to warm weather. We contacted this group and spoke to Barbara who... More

I am a mother who traveled with her husband and 3 boys (12,13, and 15). We were on our Alaskan cruise with my in-laws (67 and 72 yrs old) and our ship stopped at the port of Skagway. The town was nice but not a lot to do and kind of got boring after a little while. So we were... More

We had a great time on this excursion 4x4 tour. The owner and guide were great. Kawasaki Mules were new and handled well on the trails. The food was homemade and delicious. This was a fun day and we really enjoyed it. The ferry to and from was great and gave us the opportunity to see even more of the... More

We are an extended family of 12 people of all ages. This was the perfect adventure. It got us out of the 'tourist-trap' jewelry stores and up into the mountains to experience outdoor Alaska. Friendly, informative and entertaining guides. Yes, the Mules are very tame and mild, excitement-wise, but we were here for the forest and scenic experience. A good... More

We had a wonderful day in Skagway on this adventure. Took a ferry right from the cruise ship pier (we were on Holland America) which took us to Haines, Alaska where we boarded a van that took us to the base camp. There we took off on our mountain adventure. The views were amazing and my hubby had a blast... More
